|Ball In' The Jack||
Too bad the recording has suffered so badly. And I agree the castanets are gratuitous.
Incidentally, the spelling is usually "Ballin' the Jack," a dance song with pretty pointless steps (balling = dancing to the point of exhaustion, jack = the male partner), but the song was popular for decades.
What exactly was a 'Ball in the Jack'?
Subject: Oh no! Castanets again!
Fairly repetitive song which features much trumpets, fanfare, and yes, castanets. You know, at the beginning when I was listening to these recordings, Castanets were sort of a fun addition. Now they're getting to be annoying lol
